    Regain Privacy with Dense Holly Trees

    The Nellie Stevens Holly is a dense privacy evergreen that's not only adaptable, but is loaded with style and pizzazz.

    This beauty is a gem in any landscaping design and easily fits into smaller spaces with precise pruning; or it can also be planted as a centerpiece with its conical shape.

    You'll appreciate how this holly maintains its lush, deep green foliage all year long. Nellie Stevens leaves are thick and lustrous, making it perfect for hedges.

    Springtime brings the appearance of discreet white flowers that will mature into bright red berries by fall. The scarlet berries are a glorious vision against the deep green foliage, and you'll definitely want to clip a few branches to decorate your home for the holidays.

    This Holly's nearly impenetrable leaves make it a natural privacy hedge and easily blocks out neighbors and noise. Plant several in a row 5-6 feet apart and you'll get a handsome and well-designed privacy hedge.

    The Nellie Stevens Holly is equally at home as an accent tree- setting off the corners of a house or your patio.

    Nellie Stevens is a low-maintenance, fast growing evergreen- and it practically thrives on neglect. Just plant it and watch it grow, up to 3 feet per year. You simply trim it to match whatever height you prefer.

    This holly does very well in urban areas where air pollution can be a problem for many trees and shrubs. It's perfectly suited in small strips of soil along a sidewalk or street.

    If you're a bird watcher, you'll enjoy how the berries attract a variety of birds such as robins, cedar waxwings and mockingbirds. As a bonus for you, deer steer clear away from the Nellie Stevens Holly.

    This plant is happiest in partial to full sun, is drought-tolerant and adapts to most any soil type.

    Our Nellie Stevens Hollies are delivered to you lush and healthy and ready for rapid growth. This Holly is selling fast, so order yours today.

    Ordered 40 Nellie R Stevens hollies to plant around our pool fence. Plants came safely boxed 2 to a box, soil was moist and fresh. Plants were delivered earlier then expected so we had to wait about a week before planting. I worried that they would have problems planting late in the season as it was getting very hot here. Plants have been in the ground about six weeks and we are already seeing new growth! Very impressed with Brighter Blooms Plants!!!!

    I ordered 6 Nellie Stevens Holly trees 12 days ago and got them today. They look beautful and healthy. I promply called my landscaper, and when he saw them, he was so impressed with the trees. He said the trees look so healthy. We planted them today now we will watch them grow.

    Last summer I bought 26 nellie stevens hollies 4-6 foot. They arrived nicely packed, 2 per package. They were around 5 feet tall. I planted them 5 feet apart, and even though they are growing very nicely, I won't have the dense privacy hedge I was looking for for at least 5-6 years. So, if you want privacy faster plant them closer. Great plants!

    I ordered 10, 4 foot, Nellie Stevens Holly trees September 2010. Planted them within a week putting a 50:50 mix of Miracle Grow Tree and Shrub Soil mixed with the Earths Soil. I planted them 4 feet apart because I need the thickest screen to block my neighbors. To my amazement I noticed growth within 6 weeks and these things are growing even while its under 35 degrees! There are no Berries on them but I was told its because they are still young and adapting to new conditions. They have strong stems and thick dark green sharp leaves, even the new growth has firm stems. I will be ordering another 10 in 2011.

    Still have not received due to weather then after calling to see when they will be shipped I find out 7 of these bushes/ trees are not available a few days ago! Your sales people say 12 of chosen size available then not? Go to your local nursery and get it a lot sooner!

    The three hollies I received are in very good shape with healthy-looking foliage, tiny flowers and green berries (which will turn red, of course). The root systems look really good.
